Tim, does the gasket come with the t-case rebuild kit? I'm pulling it due to possible need for a rebuild/replacement, otherwise I will definitely just get the single gasket.

Super easy. Yes you can bench press it full of fluid. If you tip it way back fluid will run out where the rear shaft goes in and it will get messy. The tranny will drip a little bit. It's only those 6 bolts, linkage, wiring, and shafts. If you can't get a wrench on the top bolts put a Jack under the tranny crossmember and unbolt crossmmber from frame and lower it a little. Leave Jack under it so you don't put all that stress on the motor mounts. I used a shitload of rtv, but will get the gasket front The dealership now that I know they have one.

I think that pretty much sums it up lol. I know most if that was already posted, but hearing it from multiple peoe always makes me more confident so I figured I'd say my piece.

yeah... i plan on getting the gasket if/when i pull the t-case again... i usually rule out the stealorship right away just because on average they are higher than the parts stores

I've never had an issue with rtv leaking so I'm not really worried about it. If it leaks I'll replace it with a gasket.

GM doesn't offer a t-case rebuild "kit" per se, each part is to be bought separately

just so you guys know, there's 3 different gaskets for the adapters, depending on OBS, NBS, NNBS and some depend on which t-case you have, if you guys would like I can throw the other ones up here and tell you the difference between them

thanks again guys, feeling pretty solid about the removal just got to find some time to do it here soon. I am crossing my fingers that the grinding I am hearing is coming from the case and is not to big a deal. I think t-case is the cheapest of the multiple other places it could be, it definitely sounds like it is coming from the case though.

yeah, they're not too bad, I used to install t-cases mostly by myself, hoist it up with both hands, and hold it in with one hand while putting the nuts & bolts in with the other
